i'm also with you on DP #9. i listen to most of them regularly and i can NEVER get through that one...its a total snooze.

i know many will disagree, but i think the show on Dick's Picks #24 (3/23/74) is VERY overrated. while there are some nice moments in the 2nd set (particularly the 1st Playin') and a solid Weather Report Suite, i find most of it, especially the 1st set, rather perfunctory.
add that Garcia is having a rare off night on guitar (the China Cat makes me cringe) and i think it's one of the weakest DPs, which is ironic given that '74 is probably their best year.

i find volumes 21 and 27 to be rather weak as well, but that should come as no surprise since their from '85 and '92, and as Cliff would say, there's not really much going on here
